ABSTRACT
This article states that one of the one of the world's most endangered mammals, the Bornean subspecies of the Sumatran rhinoceros, has been captured on film in the wild for the first time. The rhino, believed to be one of a population of as few as 13 individuals, was photographed by a motion-triggered camera trap set up in remote jungle in Sabah, Malaysia. On Borneo, there have been no confirmed reports of the species, apart from those in Sabah, for 20 years; experts fear that it may be extinct on the rest of the island.
